Grasping Abstract Concepts
Microeconomic concepts can be abstract and sometimes counter-intuitive. We employ concrete examples, simulations, and interactive games to bring these concepts to life, making them more tangible and understandable.
Applying Mathematical Models
Many students struggle with applying math to economic concepts. We help students grasp these mathematical models by breaking them down into manageable parts and offering plenty of practice problems to solidify their understanding.
Graphs are used extensively in microeconomics to illustrate concepts. Some students find interpreting these graphs challenging. We use step-by-step methods to explain how to read and draw these graphs, and how they represent economic concepts.
Linking to the Real World
Students often struggle to see the relevance of microeconomic concepts to the real world. We connect theories to current economic events and real-life scenarios, demonstrating the practical application of the concepts being studied.
The free-response section of the AP exam requires clear, concise, and analytical writing. We provide structured essay writing coaching to help students present their ideas effectively.
Preparing for AP Exam
The AP Microeconomics exam requires students to recall and apply complex concepts quickly. We provide tailored revision strategies and practice exams to help students prepare effectively.
Real-life Case Studies
Using case studies of real businesses or economic events to illustrate economic principles is a powerful teaching tool. These case studies can help students see the practical application of abstract concepts, making them more relatable and understandable.
Graphs are vital in microeconomics to illustrate and explain many concepts, from supply and demand to cost curves. Regular practice in drawing, interpreting, and explaining these graphs is crucial for mastering microeconomics.
Incorporating mathematical models can aid in understanding economic relationships and principles. We help students grasp these models by breaking them down into manageable parts, explaining each element and showing how it contributes to the overall picture.
Using online resources, we can simulate economic scenarios that allow students to make decisions and see the resulting outcomes. This can be an engaging way to understand how different economic principles interact in complex ways.
Discussion and Debate
Economics is often about trade-offs and differing perspectives. Facilitating discussions or debates on these topics can help students understand the complexities and nuances of economic decision-making.
Exam Strategy Sessions
As the AP exam has a specific format and scoring criteria, targeted sessions focusing on exam strategies are beneficial. This includes dissecting practice questions, writing practice essays, and learning time management strategies.
